The first man named Thomas Scot/Scott

From on 3 September 2015
Thanks for your email, I’m not so sure that we are on the same tram with the Brown’s. Did you know there were two Esther Scott’s who married Brown’s, the linage I’m tracing goes back to Esther’s parents, who were John Thomas Scot or Scott sealer of King Island he lived with two Aboriginal women 1. Mary 2. Maria, one of these women was the mother of Esther, other sibs were Jane, Kitty, Thomas and Mary.
There has been much published about Scot as he had a diary. (All children were sent to the main land after Scot drowned with a younger unknown name child). Esther ends up in Hobart servant to a well known Dr, she marries a Henry Brown, their son Thomas Henry is the line I’m following..

by Julie Gough. in her Letter, dated Sat, 19 Jul 2008,
The elusive Thomas SCOT/T, the son of John Scot/t the sealer of King Island d.1843, and of a Tasmanian Aboriginal woman Maria Scott.
In 1843 Scot snr drowned when a ship visiting King Island: "The Rebecca" foundered and Thomas and his two sisters were sent to Geelong from their Tasmanian Aboriginal mother Maria and another, Mary.
The girls, Kitty/Catherine and Mary Ann/Marianne were sent to Misses Drysdale and Newcombe in this district, and the son, Thomas was sent to NA Fenwick, Police Magistrate Geelong, who it seems returned to Scotland from 1845-50. The family - descendants of the girls, have an oral story of Thomas drowning about 1850 in Victoria - that I haven't yet been able to verify.
I am hoping to clarify what happened to Thomas Scot, and also who was this William COLLETT ex-VDL (eg: who was Mr MAHONEY, of Moorabool Street who was trying to find him in 1850?). Was he an Aboriginal or non Aboriginal "native"?
Thanks to M.Kenny I have this ref. below - but during a brief Melb trip last week found that this year - 1845 - of Portland Guardian is not held at SLV - but is at SLNSW - does anyone have this journal or full entry? There is a slight chance this IS the Thomas Scott I am seeking -with age discrepancy:

Finding Scott WRECK OF THE CONVICT SHIP "NEVA," ON KING'S ISLAND.
The NEVA sailed from Cork on January 8th, 1835, B. H. Peck, master; Dr. Stevenson, R.N., surgeon. She had on board 150 female prisoners and thirty-three of their children, nine free women and their twenty-two children, and a crew of twenty-six. Several ships had been wrecked on King's Island, and when a vessel approached it the mate of the watch warned his men to keep a bright look out. He said, "King's Island is inhabited by anthropophagi, the bloodiest man eaters ever known; and, if you don't want to go to pot, you had better keep your eyes skinned." So the look-out man did not go to sleep. Nevertheless, the 'Neva' went ashore on the Harbinger reef, on May 13th unshipped her rudder and parted into four pieces. Only nine men and thirteen women reached the island, 7 survived the cold - The surviving men were the master, B. H. Peck, Joseph Bennet, Thomas Sharp, John Watson, Edward Calthorp, Thomas Hines, Robert Ballard, John Robinson, and William Kinderey. The women were Ellen Galvin, Mary Stating, Ann Cullen, Rosa Heland, Rose Dunn, and Margaret Drury.
They watched the savages approaching; at length they could count their number. They were only eleven all told, and were advancing slowly. Now they saw that seven of the eleven were small, only picaninnies. When they came nearer three out of the other four were seen to be lubras, and the eleventh individual then resolved himself into a white savage, who roared out, "Mates ahoy!"
The white man was Scott, the sealer, who had taken up is abode on the island with his harem, three Tasmanian gins and seven children. They were the only permanent inhabitants; the cannibal blacks had disappeared, and continued to exist only in the fancies of the mariners. Scott's residence was opposite New Year's Island not far from the shore; there he had built a hut and planted a garden with potatoes and other vegetables. Flesh meat he obtained from the kangaroos and seals. Their skins he took to Launceston in his boat, and in it he brought back supplies of flour and groceries.


The second man named Thomas Scot/Scott


Ship From: , updated on 24 Aug 2015. She advises me to use Upper case for surnames, to avoid confusion.
From a Rootsweb entry dated 1999, Esther Scott is believed to have been born in 1814 at Launceston.
In the book by Mr Buchanan titled "Births in Tasamania - 1830" there are three entries for Esther Scott. These are Scott Esther 1814 Ltn MM1 1820 p15, Scott Esther 1814 LtnCofE 373/5 GI, and Scott Esther 1818 Ltn CSO/1122A p62.
I have copies of the references for the first and last entries but have been unable to locate the entry LtnCofE, 373/5, GI, which I assume means the Launceston Church of England General Index. The Archives in Tasmania were very helpful and helped me track down more information. Esther was born to Thomas SCOTT and Mary Tracey. Both parents of Esther were brought to Tasmania as convicts. Are there any shipping records for the period since the first settlement at Port Dalrymple in 1804 and 1830?
Another view, From CuriousFox
Mary TRACEY was described as INFAMOUS - Dublin
The Prison Authorities in Port Arthur Tasmania described my direct ancestor Mary TRACEY as INFAMOUS - one can only imagine what she did to earn that tag. Mary TRACEY was born in Ireland - and possibly in Dublin Ireland - circa 1790 - that is a very rubbery guess. She had a child with Thomas SCOTT in Launceston Tasmania in 1814. It is rumoured that she had an earlier child - perhaps in Ireland? She was convicted in Dublin Ireland and transported to Australia in 1809. Sadly there is no record that I can find to tell me who her mother and perhaps her father (if she knew the latter) were. I am hoping that a TRACEY descendant with links to Dublin Ireland might recall a family story about a female member of the TRACEY family being transported to Australia around 1809. There were other convicts from Dublin Ireland with the surname TRACEY but so far none seem related.
The said above Thomas SCOTT by the way was from Surrey England - he arrived in New South Wales by 1806. The daughter of Mary TRACEY was Esther SCOTT. That Esther SCOTT married Henry BROWN in Launceston Tasmania in 1831. That Henry BROWN was from Middlesex England. He was transported to Tasmania in 1820 On the ship "Dromedary" Thomas SCOTT , convicted in Surrey Eng and sentenced to life. Transported on Fortune. Arr Sydney NSW Aus 12 July 1806. Then to Tasmania to serve sentence. He had a daughter born called Esther SCOTT circa 1814.
Was Henry Brown a convict?
I was asked this by on Thursday, 9 April, 2009 and replied
He was wed at Launceston in 1831
To the people who went free to Tasmania, the convicts were a very important source of labour - which only cost the food and clothing and shelter - they worked without being paid a wage, were not allowed to object, and if they ran away were ruthlessly hunted.
By the time Melbourne was being started in 1839, with labourers being brought from England because they did not want to be a convict employment centre, Launceston was an established town, with a Cricket team. By 1841 they were having matches against a team from Melbourne, and showing off their town, welcoming the tourists.
Use Website Convicts permission to marry - all convicts were under supervision, and getting married was a legal thing so they needed permission to do so.
Using the web site, and Henry Brown, you can see that two needed permission, because the girls they wanted to marry were convicts.
Searching using Scott, there are no girls called Esther who needed permission to marry a convict.
Checking the Convicts named Henry Brown, there were 4 before 1831,
arrived 10 Jan 1820 Dromedary, 28 Jul 1829 Lady Harewood, (2 on this ship), 21 Oct 1821 Malabar,
When searching the Tasmanian Archives, you need to know a spelling item - Esther's name is SCOTT, ESHTER - a typo that the Computer does not correct.

As far as we know Esther was born to convicts Thomas Scott and Mary Tracey.
From Suzanne - Thomas SCOTT , convicted in Surrey England and sentenced to life. Transported on the ship “Fortune”. Arrived Sydney NSW Aus 12 July 1806. Then to Tasmania to serve sentence.

SHIP NEWS.
Yesterday arrived the Fortune, Captain Henry Moore, with 242 male convicts and a Military Guard of 27 Rank and File, commanded by Ensign Mullin of the 8th Veteran Battalion, from England which she left the 28th of January in company with His Majesty's armed vessel Porpoise, the Alexander transport, and Lady Madeline Sinclair with stores, Governor BLIGH being on board the latter ship. — The Fortune parted company with the above vessels in 9° north, on account of sickness: arrived at Rio Janeiro the 11th of April, and sailed the 30th, leaving the Alexander and Elizabeth whalers at that port, which had parted company with the Porpoise and Sinclair about the 10th of April, the latter ship proceeding on to the Cape of Good Hope. — The Fortune has lost only three convicts and one soldier, who were diseased on embarking.
The account we received of the last glorious exploit achieved by the late much lamented Admiral Lord Viscount NELSON against the combined fleets of France and Spain is confirmed with this difference, that instead of 23 ships of the line, the enemy's loss amounted to thirtv-two, with the capture of three Admirals.
The death of the Right Honorable WILLIAM PITT Captain Moore announces also; an event sincerely and universally regretted by the British Nation.
For the particulars of the investment imported in the Fortune, we refer to the Advertisement in the last column.

The Experiment transport, Capt. Withers, appeared in sight on Thursday morning last, but the wind being right against her making the harbour, she could not get in till this morning. On Friday, a boat was dispatched from the vessel with His Excellency's pacquets, which arrived at one o'clock on Saturday morning.
She brings 130 female convicts, and two male, one of whom, Anthony Rowson, had effected his escape from the Colony ; she lost on her passage 4 or 5 women, prisoners, and the wives of two free settlers also died. The Experiment left England the 2nd of January, having been obliged to put back into Cowes, owing to damage sustained in a violent gale she experienced in the Bay of Biscay, in which she sprung her bowsprit, and carried away her maintopgallant-mast. She sailed in company with about 150 sail of West Indiamen under convoy, from which she separated in the Western Ocean. She arrived at Rio the 8th of March, and sailed from thence the 8th of April. — She has a valuable investment, the particulars of which we have not been able to certain.

Esther Scott born 1814 in Tasmania

As far as we know Esther was born to Thomas Scott and Mary Tracey, who came to Tasmania as convicts. From Suzanne - Mary TRACEY was born in Ireland - and possibly in Dublin Ireland - circa 1790 - that is a very rubbery guess. She had a child with Thomas SCOTT in Launceston Tasmania in 1814.

Henry Brown came to Tasmania in 1820

That Henry BROWN was from Middlesex England. He was transported to Tasmania in 1820 On the ship "Dromedary"
Searching the Tasmanian Archives, I found Henry Brown, Number 247, came on the Dromedary 1820, charged at Middlesex July 1819, sentenced to 7 years, on 9 Aug 1826 there was an assault charge .... and he was to appear at the Criminal Court (perhaps against Abraham Aaron). Only 2 lines of writing on the quarter page, hard to read.
Checking the Old Bailey I found HENRY BROWN, Theft > grand larceny, 7th July 1819. Aged 18, sentenced to be Transported for Seven Years
934. HENRY BROWN was indicted for stealing, on the 7th of June , one trunk, value 1 s.; 2 oz. of silk, value 1 s.; twelve balls of cotton, value 1 s.; four pieces of bobbin, value 6 d.; forty-eight buttons, value 9 d., and fifteen yards of tape, value 1 s. , the property of the Honourable Frederick West .
ANN DANCER . I am servant to the lady of the Honourable Frederick West , who lives in Upper Grosvenor-street . On the 7th of June, about one o'clock in the morning, her trunk, which contained these things was in my possession - it was in the housekeeper's room.

SHIP News. - On Monday last arrived from, England, His Majesty's store ship Dromedary,
Captain Skinner, with 369 male prisoners. She left England in September, and came direct without touching any where on her voyage. - Surgeon Superintendant, Dr. Fairfoul, R. N.-
The guard consists of a detachment of the 84th Regt. under the command of Captain R. R. Crouse. She has also a detachment on board of the 69th, commanded by Ensign Craw; of the same Regiment, which come out to join their Regiment in India.
Passengers, Lieut. M'Arthur, R.N. and Mr. Ward.
Remain in the harbour, with His Majesty's ship Dromedary and the brig Prince Leopold, the brigs John Shore, Jupiter, and Sophia.
On page 2
Two hundred male convicts were landed yesterday morning from His Majesty's Store Ship Dromedary, and were inspected by the LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR, who was pleased to express his particular satisfaction at their healthy, clean, and orderly appearance, which His Honor considered to be highly creditable to the Officers under whose charge they came out, and which with the good character given of them during the voyage made a very favorable impression as to themselves.
The largest portion of these crown servants were immediately assigned to settlers; and a number went off this day for Port Dalrymple. If any thing were required to prove the humane attention which is manifested towards the convicts, on the part of His Majesty's Government, from which emanates the regulations of their transport, and on the part of the Officers under whom they come out, the Dromedary would form a conspicuous instance; as of 369 men embarked, all have arrived in this port, and without one serious case of sickness on board.
Port Dalrymple
The first inhabitants of the area of Launceston were largely nomadic Tasmanian Aborigines believed to have been part of the North Midlands Tribe. The first white visitors did not arrive until 1798, when George Bass and Matthew Flinders were sent to explore the possibility that there was a strait between Australia and Van Diemen's Land (now Tasmania). They originally landed in Port Dalrymple (the mouth of the Tamar River), 40 kilometres (25 miles) to the north-west of Launceston.
The first significant colonial settlement in the region dates from 1804, when the commandant of the British garrison Lt. Col. William Paterson, and his men set up a camp on the current site of George Town. A few weeks later, the settlement was moved across the river to York Town, and a year later was moved to its definitive position where Launceston stands.
Initially the settlement was called Patersonia; however, Paterson later changed the name to Launceston in honour of the New South Wales Governor Captain Philip Gidley King, who was born in Launceston, Cornwall.[12] The name still survives in the tiny hamlet of Patersonia 18 kilometres (11 mi) north-west of Launceston. Paterson himself also served as Lieutenant-Governor of northern Van Diemen's Land from 1804 to 1808.
By 1827, Launceston's population had climbed to 2,000 and the town had become an export centre, mainly for the colony's northern pastoral industry.[10] Small hotels and breweries began to emerge in the 1820s, before larger, more "substantial" hotels were built in the 1830s. Sporting groups, political groups, churches and schools were often established in these hotels; however, they also hosted plays, musical soirees and readings, until theatres were built.

Where is Patterson's Plain?
Originally established as a military post in 1811, it was known variously as Collins Hill, Patersons Plains, Gordon Plains, and Morven before the town's name was changed to Evansdale and eventually to Evandale in 1836 in honour of Tasmania's first Surveyor-General, G.W. Evans and declared a municipality in 1865. Evandale today is a National Trust classified Georgian village, popular with tourists for its unspoiled heritage buildings notably St Andrews Church, the Uniting Church, with its classical bell tower and Doric columns, Blenheim (1832) in High Street; Royal Oak (1840) and adjoining stables now Evandale Antiques, Clarendon Arms Hotel (1847) and Fallgrove (1826) in Russell Street; Solomon House (1836), and the saddler's shop (1840) at the intersection of Russell Street and High Street.
